Hi, your monkey logo is very cool and all, but is there a way I can remove it from the footer please?May 10, 2012 at 3:52 pm #30918
You can simply remove if you have the technical knowledge to do so otherwise you can simply turn it off in pro.

Access your server where all the files are stored and saved (Filezilla Free FTP Client or use Dreamweaver). Then go or find the following directory on your server where your files are hosted:
Inside that directory you will find a file called footer-actions (its a PHP Script File). If you’re a novice like me, find the file and save a copy of the file onto your desktop as footer_actions_original (just in case). Now open the original footer-actions file using text editor on win platform/dreamweaver or other text editor.
Now open the the following file PDF File footer-actions_original.pdf. Scroll to the bottom of the file to the area highlighted in red and delete the same information from the text file, exactly as you see it in the ‘footer-actions‘ file (not the one you saved as a backup).
The last thing you have to do is to now save the file (footer-actions) which you have just edited and upload it back to the server in the same directory.
Now you have your site without that chimp showing and to prove it, go to your browser and open your website and you won’t see that chimp again.
Amazing what you can learn today!
Enjoy.July 24, 2012 at 9:03 pm #43326
Thank you Quint2black!July 24, 2012 at 11:34 pm #43362
A quick tip and warning that such edits will be overwritten upon upgrading to a newer theme version unless you use a child theme:
Which is absolutely your right to use whether free or pro. Just change the name to your theme name.

I’m using the Business Lite and also would like to remove the chimp logo. I’m able to get this to happen when I use Quint2black’s method. However, I want to put this in a child theme.
I created a child theme using the above tutorial, uploaded my theme, activated it and tested it out by changing the [body} background. My color changes, so I know my child is being used. However, when I try to overwrite the footer-actions.php, it still defaults to the parent, not the child. I put my copy into the /business-lite-child/core/actions/ directory and it still pulls from the parent.
Any tips? I’ve used this method with other child themes I’ve created and was able to overwrite functions/templates/etc.

This kind of support (from the CyberChimps support staff) is reserved for the pro forum only, please see:
However, you’re fully welcome to wait and see if the community answers.

I’m finding this a frustrating theme to customize as normal conventions where files are usually located aren’t used and a lot of the free forum answers are “that’s in the paid support”. Not judging, but unless you want this exactly as is, out of the box, you are almost forced to buy the pro version (almost, you always have a choice to buy or go to another theme).
As an example, none of the styles are in the styles.css file – completely odd as every other theme I’ve used, paid or otherwise, uses styles.css to, you know, use styles. Whereas this theme buries them in core/css/foundation.css
Care to explain the rationale, Bryan? Love to know the thinking behind it.

The free themes are no different than the pro themes in terms of how all the files/code is laid out. I definitely agree it’s not as “simple” as other themes, but it’s also more advanced in features than most themes.
The framework is currently being redesigned from scratch, hopefully making things more easy.
Anyways, you’ve misunderstood what pro support is for. You don’t upgrade so that you CAN customize your theme, you can fully customize your theme no matter what if you know what you’re doing. The point of upgrading is if you need customization help, as in writing styles.
You can use the techniques laid out here and add styles to your stylesheet:
Though, I’d recommend setting up a child theme:

Hang on a minute, he has a question about the lite version of this theme and you tell him to buy the pro version and get pro support. The pro support will tell him to click the button saying “turn off cyberchimp logo”
In other words you’re telling him to “buy the pro version or go and whistle”
youre just not being that honest about saying it though.
because here, youre saying “Anyways, you’ve misunderstood what pro support is for. You don’t upgrade so that you CAN customize your theme, you can fully customize your theme no matter what if you know what you’re doing. The point of upgrading is if you need customization help, as in writing styles.”
If that is true then why isnt the button to turn off the logo included in the lite version?

@gertcha – You can do anything you want in the lite version, if you know how; that’s your right under the GPL license. The footer credit can be removed by either directly removing it from a file or using CSS to hide it. However, if you do not have coding knowledge, yes, it can simply be turned off in pro.
This is standard practice for all theme shops and it’s perfectly reasonable.
